Travelling with medicines

Are you planning to take medicines with you on your journey? If so, we recommend that you carry your medication in your hand luggage (if possible), preferably in their original packaging. You should always take an English medical passport from your pharmacy with you so are guaranteed that others know exactly what medication you need when abroad. If you plan on taking with you medicines covered by the Dutch Opium Act, we advise you to consult the website of the CAK.
